Here is another solution that most people overlook:

You can use XML APIs without using XML and still get
most of the benefits.

Store your XML in any format you want but write a
SAX parser for it so that log processing applications
can be XML applications.  This allows you to move up
to XML storage format when and if you need to without
rewriting any software.

Log producers work in reverse, meaning that they fire
SAX events and a special SAX application write out the
information into a file in custom format or send it to
a log server using whatever wire format you want.

You can do something similar with DOM as well.
